Beautifully bound in a soft unevenly edged journal and told with humour, innocence, intimacy and affection, the daily entries of a fictional twelve year old disclose the spellbinding details of life during the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-19.
Our daughter Lucy (9) also contributes to the discussion of the book, which she tells us is part of her current favourite series.
